Wars and storms

Raging wars,
And raging storms.
They're so much a like.
Having power that strikes.

Like the clangs of thunder.
Angry battle cries are asunder.
Both leave children crying in tears.
Both are something people fear.

Flashes of light from the lightening.
Flashes of canons can be frightening.
So why are people afraid of what they both send.
It's because they don't knoe how to make either end.

Trying to surpress these shivers in our skins.
It doesn't work, our will doesn't win.
So we sit here cowering in whaf we hate.
Hoping our savour wont be too late.
